British Royal couple Prince William and Catherine, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, are to visit Queenstown next month.

The Royals will be in the resort on April 13 during a nine-day visit to New Zealand before they leave for Australia.

While in Queenstown they’ll take jetboat ride with Shotover Jet.

Shotover Jet is “thrilled and delighted” to be taking the Royals, Ngai Tahu Tourism southern regional manager David Kennedy says.

“The Royal couple are known for their love of the outdoors and sports, so we think they’ll really enjoy the chance to experience a world-leading Queenstown adventure tourism operation,” Ngai Tahu Tourism southern regional manager David Kennedy says.

“In the Duke’s case, as a helicopter pilot we believe he’ll certainly appreciate the advanced technology coupled with Kiwi ingenuity that makes our jetboats special.”
